Its been a long and stressful week!!! Luckily its a slow cake week for me, but I've got some other things going on that are just putting me in a FUNK!! I'm weaning my little Olivia from nursing and its proving to be much more difficult than I anticipated. For one, she doesn't love the bottle so there have been a lot of challenges w/ getting her to finish just 5 ounces. But I have to say whats even harder is MY feelings towards saying goodbye to nursing!! I thought I'd be so relieved and excited (which part of me is), but I'm also very sad that its all coming to an end. She is my baby, but she is almost 11 months old and its TIME. But its hard letting go. This is just one step closer to 18 and leaving for college...really, thats really how I feel. I'm crazy, I know.
Can you imagine the break down I'm going to have when I watch Bailey walk onto the school bus for kindergarden in 2011!? **tearing up already**
Anyway, there it is. The center of my stress.
Ahhhh, to vent. That felt nice.
Moving on...Last night was our turn to host small group at our house and whoever hosts always has a dessert and coffee to munch on for everyone. Well, I was planning on making a cake since, like I said, its a slow cake week for me. But after a very emotional day (for Livie and myself) I didn't have the energy or creative mind to come up with anything so here is what I served.
I think it was the perfect dessert to capture my mood. :) And what a great and supportive group of friends I have who gobbled it up all while working to cheer me up!
"I'm Tired!! Here's your CAKE!!"
